11 injured in freak accident

Eleven people sustained severe injuries in a car crash that occurred at Nankese near Koforidua on Saturday evening.
The injured passengers were sent to the Suhum and Koforidua Government Hospital respectively through a swift intervention by two National Ambulance vehicle who were returning from standby duties.

Five of the victims were sent to the Suhum government hospital while the remaining six were also sent to the Eastern Regional Hospital for treatment.

An eyewitness who spoke to the “Ghanaian Times on condition of anonymity  said a black Audi Q7 with registration number GG- 9931-15, while overtaking another vehicle in what looked like a “racing game”, on the Suhum -Koforidua road after a  downpour, veered off its lane and crashed into an Urvan mini bus with registration number GB-4150- 12, pushing the bus off the road into the bush.

The eyewitness said “we were on our way from Koforidua to Asamankese when some two cars were overtaking each other, but I was not really looking ahead so all I heard were loud screams and then a huge bang; so some of us came out hurriedly and started helping those who got injured.”

The Suhum Police Commander, Superintendent J.K Owusu and his men have visited the scene and have commenced investigations into the accident.
